Complimentary European-Style Breakfast Buffet

When you book a room at the beautiful and historic Glidden House in Cleveland’s University Circle, you can expect a complimentary European-style breakfast included with your accommodations. You’ve probably never had a hotel breakfast so delicious.

We have always cherished the time we spend with our guests over breakfast. The loggia, library, and parlour, which now serve as our dining areas, are some of the most detailed spaces of the Glidden House. We decided it was time to turn that same detailed care to our menu. Our guests can now enjoy personalized servings of delicious new menu items each morning.

As the most important meal of the day, breakfast should be served hot and with style. Guests of the Glidden House are invited to gather daily for a complimentary European-style Breakfast Buffet. This is not the typical continental breakfast you’re to find at other hotels. Served in the original loggia, library, and parlour, you will receive personalized service from our friendly staff in a grand setting along with all the hot and cold breakfast staples you need to fuel your day. Plus, you can look forward to a few unexpected options that even the most discriminating palates are sure to love.

Guests will enjoy a variety of unique and gourmet offerings. These foods are sure to suit you no matter your mood or personal preference, including:

  • Individual Frittatas/ Baked Eggs or Scrambled
  • Oatmeal Creation Station
  • Waffles and French Toast with Syrup
  • Breakfast Potatoes /Sweet Potato Hash
  • Cinnamon Rolls, Danish, and Bread
  • Apples/Bananas and Individual Fruit Cocktail
  • And more

Your mouth will surely water when you see our selection of breakfast items, made fresh daily, including fresh baked bread and pastries. When you stay at the Glidden House, you can also choose from a variety of beverages, including coffee, quality teas and much more. Although we are a boutique hotel, our European-style breakfast has the charm and appeal of a small B&B.
